Requiesat in Pacem, Mrs. Overlord...

 My beloved Rosemarie Therese Pannell (nee Santos) passed away quietly this afternoon due to heart failure and complications brought on by COVID. She was 55.

Mrs. Overlord has returned to The Force.

I have never met a kinder, gentler, more-decent soul in all of my life. For the last 15 years or so, we have fought the good fight -- knowing all the time that we would not win -- against Muscular Dystrophy. It is asked that if you can find it in your hearts to do so, that you make a donation in her memory to the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

Every little bit helps and they are making enormous progress with each passing day to help improve and to save the lives of people stricken with these terrible diseases.

I may be signing off for a while, but I will be back. Thank you all for your support and readership.

So sorry for your loss.

Reading your words over the years, your voice resonates with me. As I read your announcement it caused a visceral response.

Thank you for sharing this deeply personal view.
